I have the newest version of CFG and I have DM (not Lite). It was trying to move the games from the small partition of my USB drive (which I configured for DM games) to the main partition of my USB drive (which isn't configured for DM games). By configured, I mean set to FAT32 with 32kb clusters, like the guide recommends.
Umm . yeah. It can only see the first partition, so if you've got stuff on a second partition, DM won't see it and has to move it.
DM can only be used on the first, primary, active partition (not logical, not second, third, fifteenth). This is why we recommend you don't partition more than a single FAT32 partition using the entire hard drive.
Does it have to be 32kb cluster?
So just to be clear, if I want to use DM I must have my whole USB drive set to FAT32 32kb clusters?
No!You can have it Partitioned Or split the drive like so....

On the other side you can have it partitioned to Fat32 with 32Kb's Cluster and set as Primary & Active.
The Fat32 partition "Must" be seen first or it will not run properly.
But as I said, it definitely makes things easier if it is all one partition. :)
Alright, thanks for the help everyone.
Wow, this thread is outstanding. So So much information.
I am pulling my hair out here. I have a WD 4TB My Book HDD and I can not get it to work with GC
I got the GC playing from the USB 100% perfect but I can not get them to work from my 4TB HDD.
So I am guessing my HDD is not compatible, WHAT? No Way! Right?
I have tried different formatters and I partitioned the drive.
Why won't Dios Mios read the games? It goes to a black screen and Dios Mios doesn't show up.
If anyone knows a way around this you can stop me pulling my hair out before I go bald.
I can play the GC but I want them all together on my Massive 4TB HDD.
Do I have to buy a different brand HDD? I thought I had the best.
What can I do? :035:
